Event Details

Program Description

The Radiation Injury Treatment Network seeks to increase healthcare professionals’ understanding of and preparedness for the tremendous medical, environmental, and psychological consequence of a mass casualty radiological/nuclear incident. The 2019 RITN workshop will highlight recent research and policy developments in resource-constrained environments: (1) optimizing ARS patient initial assessment and triage, (2) ensuring the availability and appropriate use of medical and psycho-social supportive care measures, (3) updates on the latest research in radiation-specific medical countermeasures, (4) application of technology as a force multiplier for care and education, (5) opportunities for enhanced collaboration among burn surgeons and RITN professionals. Additionally, the workshop will include the open sharing of lessons learned from past preparedness efforts.

Educational Objectives:

  • Explain the challenges and new developments concerning patient transport, assessment and triage in the resource constrained environment. 
  • Discuss progress in research on radiation-specific countermeasures, individual bio-dosimetry, and supportive care during mass casualty radiation emergencies.
  • Describe the importance and key challenges of providing medical and psycho-social supportive care following a rad/nuke incident.

Radiation Injury Treatment Network (RITN)

Radiation Injury Treatment Network logo

The Radiation Injury Treatment Network® comprises of medical centers with expertise in the management of bone marrow failure which are preparing to care for patients with Acute Radiation Syndrome following a mass casualty disaster.

RITN plans to accomplish this:

–Before the disaster RITN hospitals develop treatment guidelines for managing hematologic toxicity among victims of radiation exposure and educate health care professionals about pertinent aspects of radiation exposure management through training and disaster exercises.
–During the disaster RITN hospitals provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment in an inpatient and outpatient setting for these victims; the RITN control cell helps to coordinate the response through sharing critical information about the disaster between DHHS-ASPR and RITN hospitals.
–After the disaster RITN hospitals collect patient treatment data for retrospective research through the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplantation Research.

RITN is led by the US National Marrow Donor Program and American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation; made possible through a grant funded by the US Navy Office of Naval Research.
